You could describe Summer Osborne as the love child of Adele, Carole King, and Joss Stone. You could describe her music as folk soul, acoustic rock, and piano pop… with glimpses of jazz, blues, and roots music. But you cannot confine her to a genre. You will laugh, you will cry, you will feel, you will enjoy yourself. Come join the adventure to feel better!! It is the evolution of the soul – one song at a time.
Summer Osborne has been on stage since four, but has been performing her original tunes for fans since 2005. During that time, lyrics and melodies have been continuously flowing through her, resulting in five full albums and an EP. Her sixth full length album is due to drop in the summer of 2012.
Since deciding to focus on her musical career (performing and writing) full time in 2009, Summer has been constantly on tour, doing shows at venues and festivals. She has played music at Pridefests all over the Mid-West US & Canada, including: Pridefest St. Louis (2005-2012); Vancouver Pride – British Columbia, Canada (2011); Mid-MO Pride – Columbia, MO (2011 and 2012); Halifax Pride - Nova Scotia, Canada (2010); Mid-South Pride - Memphis, TN (2005 & 2010); Springfield Pride - Springfield, MO (2009); Kentuckiana Pride - Lexington, KY (2009); Metro East Pride - Belleville, IL (2008, 2011 and 2012).
Summer has shared the stage with The Indigo Girls, Suzanne Westenhoefer, God-Des and She, Tiffany, Alix Olson, Betty, Tret Fure, Jen Foster, Sugarbeach, The Cliks, Crystal Waters, Martha Wash, RJ Helton, Jennifer Holliday, Kimberley Locke, and Shannon Curtis.
Summer Osborne’s only goal: to change the world by changing people’s minds about themselves… she needs LOVE, MUSIC, and YOU.
